I have nothing knitting or fiber related to dicuss today so if you're looking for that kind of post please feel free to move on to the next blog. Today I just need to vent about my zit. Yes, this morning I woke up with a huge zit right in the middle of forehead. It's like my third eye only vile and awful and something I wish I could rip off my face. But I'm 24 and I've had zits before. Why does this one zit annoy me so much? Well, I'll tell you! It annoys me because everyone points it out. It feels like 30 people have said to me today "wow, that's a big one and its right in the middle of your forehead!" Its not like I haven't noticed it people!!! Please stop pointing it out to me!! This is worse than high school!! I'm an adult, isn't this part of my life supposed to be over??? UGH!!!

I'm off to find my Zeno so I can zap the sucker...thank you for listening.

I'm sorry you are suffering with a zit. I hope you wake tomorrow and its gone.

As a constant sufferer of adult acne (I'm now 30, when does it end!) I can relate. I have very few people point things out to me, but it is horrible and like you said, it's not like you haven't seen it yourself. I'd probably say something back like "oh, you have one too, right there...oh, no it's just your nose" or something snarky like that.

I'm in the same boat at beck, so I feel your pain. And I've just come accept that my skin will likely be plagued with these fuckers for the rest of my life.

But the uplifting part is that I know my zit problem is fixable, and I had actually fixed it for about 3 months. Imagine that - three months of zit free skin!!(and consequently, scar free - 'cuz my zits cause nasty, dirty looking scars.) Those three months were grand, but soon ended when the money well to fun the cure ran dry. So now I just run around all pimply faced with scars.

I must admit though that I seriously wonder about the social manners of the people who confront you about your pesky visitor. In my humble opinion, they need to shut the hell up; their comments aren't only rude, they are insensitive. They lead me to believe that they probably don't have skin problems because if they did, they would know how hurtful and infuriating comments like that can be.

I'm WAY older than you my friend and I still get zits...but it wasn't until about 4 or 5 years ago that I figured out my issue - I'm allergic to dust. Yes, dust which is EVERYWHERE ALL THE TIME!

So needless to say, I'm usually on the look out for a pimple here and there - usually on my chin/neck (my theory is from the sheets at night)...but I do the best I and move on :o)

That's what concealer and powder is for after all
